I recently put some money down on a Taurus, all-steel, (non-ported), 415 .41 magnum snubby.
I'll go pick it up (my Christmas present to me, I guess) when my next ship comes in (hopefully before Christmas).
Anyone have any experience with this gun?
It came down to this or a Charter .44 Bulldog. I had determined to get the Charter, but I had heard of reliability/durability problems with them, so I chose the Taurus as my big-bore snubby instead. Hey, .41's a bit of a novelty anyway....
(I may go get the Bulldog later anyway, though :) )
I am a little recoil sensitive (small hands), but I've heard with 175-grain Silvertips, the .41 snubby (particularly the all steel version), isn't too bad (the ribber grips are supposed to help), so I hope it's a gun that doesn't hurt to shoot.
I've had a couple of snubbies that hurt to shoot, so I got rid of them. You'd think I'd learn my lesson, but I like those snubbies- they're very comforting and a big bored one is even more so.
I've got ammo selections picked out already for my first range session, too, as well s some speedloaders. I'm pretty excited!
Is the 415 accurate? Is it reliable? Does hurt REAL bad to shoot it? What grain weight of bullet are the sights regulated to shoot for?
Talk to me about your experienes, folks!
